    The Irish know discrimination when they see it. And they fight it harder than most. They are not to be confused with the establishment puppets that populate Fox News.

    73% is astounding support.

    I love Greg Louganis and have for many, many years. I met him once in Miami, very briefly. I won’t recount the details because it wasn’t during one of his better times. He’s worked hard, suffered a lot of emotional and physical torment, and remains a very positive role model. Lesser men would not have survived intact as Greg Louganis has. I wish him every success and happiness the world has to offer. You’ve done us proud!

    FYI – you also got the info on left-handedness wrong… Left-handed folks’ brains are LESS asymmetrical… and are therefore more symmetical. Not that it makes a big difference, but basically the article says that left-handers are more likely to be ambidexerous, and possibly more creative as they are ruled by their right brains, but may be more susceptible to certain harmful health conditions.

    Yes, at last we Irish are beginning to understand the fog of religious oppression we have lived through and also beginning to understand the meaning of equality……

    Civil Unions, if for everyone, are fine….But marriage (if it’s called that) should be available for everyone also…in Civil Law.
    I don’t care what the Churches do, or what they call their ceremonies , they should have no standing in civil law.

    On another point, I’m delighted that Greg Louganis has an Irish boyfriend……he is such a great athlete and a great icon for we gays.
    Apologies for being so parochial……but we are so beaten down by what we have done to our economy that we are clinging to any piece of good news…….”tabula in naufragio” -the plank in the shipwreck !

    And , of course, TOWLEROAD published the news that the Irish President has refused to lead the St.Patrick’s Day Parade in New York this year on the grounds that the organisers will not allow Gays and Lesbians to march.
    So another strike for equal treatment under the law.
    As for dumb ass mothers such as O’Reilly or Hannity on Fox, they make any ordinary Irish person, gay or straight, cringe with embarassment.
    At least we can’t be blamed for that f***wit, Santorum !!!
